More on the Lost Genre Guild

Trying to define Christian speculative fiction is sometimes like trying to herd chickens or sweep water, but The Lost Genre Guild has made a strong effort. Take a look at their definition here.

Check out their examples in the left column. They've done a nice job enlarging the boundaries for Christian speculative fiction to include topics I hadn't thought of. How about space opera? Or cyberpunk?

Their list of featured books include some recent offerings that are excellent, such as Shade and Never Ceese. Take a look.

It's true, they have helped to define the genre and it's subgenres. It has also drawn a lot of talented people who want to both glorify God and write strong speculative fiction.

I know it changed my life. I wrote about it in my blog

I think you've hit on one of the unique elements of the Guild, Kathy--their enlarging of the boundaries of Christian speculative fiction.

Good post.
